Day One (Washington to Truleigh)

by Jem Croucher

The view from the top
of Chanctonbury Hill
looking north into Sussex
is beautiful still

With soft clouds in the sky
and the green of the field
It is to this wonder
that we instantly yield

And the blue of the sky
with the warmth of the sun
exceeds all our hopes
for the start of day one


Over five days, starting yesterday (2 May), my brother and I are walking the second half of the South Downs Way – from Washington in West Sussex to Eastbourne in East Sussex. Day one was the 12 miles from Washington to Truleigh Hill. Photo – Jempics
